So after a short hiatus I'm back, and I've got a fun post to welcome myself back into my blogging routine. Part of my work means I get to attend some fun events and the Lifestyle @ Telford Shopping Centre is just one of them! Showcasing the latest AW16 trends for his and her fashions I couldn't wait to see the styles on offer!
I love how this year Telford decided to go for something a little different, instead of opting for one main catwalk the centre chose to showcase three style show catwalks dotted around the mall, with various shows throughout the day. As many of you will know Autumn is my favourite season so I couldn't wait to see the styles on offer during the three day event.
Hosted by the great the Fashion Show Company, I love how the shows weren't just about models walking down the run way, instead the style shows included slick dance routines that just added a hint of fun, and definitely a head turner for those wandering past doing their shopping.
From Zara to Marks and Spencer to Primark there were a great range of high street featured in each show and left me wanting to splash away the payday cash and update my wardrobe. Some of the key trends for the season included velvet, tartan and silk, and I must admit the more I see velvet on the catwalk the more I want to fill my wardrobe with this must-have fabric! Zara and Dorothy Perkins really stood out for me, their featured pieces were just gorgeous and I love how wearable their pieces were. I definitely had my eye on the Zara print skirt towards the end of the afternoon!
Each of the models were sporting The Body Shop makeup and as you know I'm partial to a lippie or three so had to go in search of the makeup used for each look. The Body Shop introduced me to their new matte liquid lipsticks and the colour range is so gorgeous, from your pretty pinks to mauve nudes there's definitely a colour to suit all. I had a little swatch in store and I love the formula, it feels very creamy to apply and dries semi-matte, so there's still a subtle sheen to the lips.
Overall I really enjoyed the looks that were showcased throughout the day, it definitely gave me that inspiration that was needed to update my wardrobe ready for the colder months ahead!
